I worked at Southwark Council
Pros – Great location, exciting challenges to address, lots of opportunity to make a difference. Diverse business means that every day is different.
Cons – Senior management are too worried about KPIs and not worried enough about innovation and, more importantly, getting rid of silo mentality and working as a whole organisation. This makes working here frustrating.
Advice to Senior Management – Commit to a 'one organisation' strategy - get rid of empires (they still exist whatever anyone tells you), and take a hard look at the outcomes being achieved. Limited evaluation of prohjects takes place which means it's almost impossible to know whether things are getting better!
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
